My hope was to load our KTTW card (band) with gift cards and the tickets - looks like the gift cards may be a pay as you charge on the KTTW card instead of being loaded.. but at least the park tickets can be loaded!
Why don't you use your gift cards to pay for your meals?

I had no idea you could do that! After more than 50 trips to WDW I just learned something new. Thanks, Kathy!!

Convenience factor really.. one less card to carry around. Plus if you lose your KTTW card/band it can be replaced. Gift cards cant.

And its hard to add a tip to a gift card for some reason... most places say they can't do it unless they also do a new charge of like a penny or quarter. Sometimes they just told us not to bother, so we just used our KTTW and then stopped by guest services and applied GCs later. We didn't cart them around, just took a stack from the safe when we had time and visited with them.

My husband tends to be a less adventures water than I am and he found lots of things he loved. We had a gift in our room from the resort which was a sweet surprise, little chocolates with a picture of the lodge printed on one. We are relaxing by the pool now, planning a walk to Kidani later. I am so relaxed and happy right now.
Congratulations!!!

How are the linens in AKL? POR was kinda stiff and I mostly slept with a sheet and my fleece from home. Should I bring better blankets?

We are booked Jambo studio in April!!!! We were hooked after staying at AKL last year I can't imagine another "home"!! We have even agreed this trip we will spend more time at the resort instead of just using it as a place to crash!

I have only stayed in DVC rooms, but the sheets were fine. I guess if you are sensitive maybe you should bring some.

Can I get a gallon of milk and a small container of cream cheese at AKL? I want to use Walmart to deliver our breakfast foods, but will still need these items. Thanks.

Oh & about how much do you think the milk will be (just so I can decide if we should use garden grocer instead).
